Not to speak for Irfan, but he did not go to a actual catback. He went with a Magnaflow 10436, aka a 4x22" round case muffler in a 2.5" in/out configuration.

He loves it but he says it is a bit loud. He came to me for suggestions and this is what I selected for him, so I am at fault for picking something that is less than ideal to what he wanted. Hindsight being 20/20, we probably should have gone to a 5x22 or 6x18.

I am thinking of doing this addition as well. I don't want it to be really loud though. Just a better sound than stock & still pass emissions. :lol:

I hear you. Sound is relative, someone who thinks one exhaust is Nascar loud might seem like stock to another person.

If you're concerned about sound levels/drone, then you can go ahead and forget about the Magnaflow 4" round series. It's too loud for most.

As ryan has stated, i went with the 4" and i like the sound, it does tend to be loud while cruising at 70-80 mph but i feel the truck def is breathing better, i also got the k+n intake

I have heard two sides of having the full catback vs. just an upgraded muffler vs. muffler delete and keeping the reso.

My questions is this ...

If you upgrade the CAI and TB would it be more beneficial to get a full CB exhaust vs. muffler upgrade vs. muffler delete ?
my goal is to make the ride breathe better and keeping quite like it is right now (a slight increase in noise is tolerable but nothing like 4") any input is appreciated ... thanks guys ...

the reason i did not get the whole catback exhaust is bc the piping stays the same size. 2.5" it is not worth the whole system if the pipes stay the same.

LOL....your opening up a can of worms and your gonna get many various opinions.

It is of my opinion that a full catback is better if you plan on more performance mods.

the piping may stay the same but a good system is usually engineered(per say) to flow better. It usually has a smoother flow and bends. It all depends on the system though as they are all different.
